    I brought my new Blackberry 8520 last week and I am totally 100% addicted To my horror I have left my charger at my friends and can't get it back until next week, the thought of a week without my new phone fills me with dread
    So please can somebody tell me will this charger work for my 8520? It says it works for the 8300, thanks everyone.

    You need a BB charger with mini-USB, that's all. I bought one that listed a few different BB's but not the 8520 and works perfectly. Alternatively buy a USB-mini-USB cable and charge from a computer. Def worth checking the mini-USB end fits as there a couple of types.

    No, not mini USB. Mini USB is for 83xx and 9000. 8520 uses micro USB. Better ask the seller if the charger fit 8520.

    Well done 7thsunday, sorry Lauren, yes a micro USB. Second time I've confused the two in these forums...

    The majority of the micro USB chargers should work for your Curve. BB is pretty nuch an equal opportunity charger.

    Anything with +5V DC and up to 700mA output is fine.

    Go into your local cell shop and ask them if you can leave your phone there to charge. People do that all the time where I go... walk around the mall for an hour and then come back.

    If you still have your USB cable the phone can charge off of a computer.
